Robert, Tammy, Mary Lynn, and Nicole would like to thank their sister for being Dad’s primary caregiver for the past several years during his declining health. Lesley, We are grateful that you were able to take care of Dad full-time which allowed him to live comfortably at home during his end of life journey.  With all our love, Thank you!
